About 5 years ago I developed a heart murmur
. My doctor ordered an echocardiogram at the recommendation of a cardiologist. The results were: ejection fraction of 65%, mild mitral valve regurgitation, mild mitral valve prolapse and mitral valve thickening. Now when I listen to my heart
I can tell the murmur
has gotten worse. My symptoms are hard to describe, but here goes. At times I can actually hear the murmur
and feel my heart
"squeezing" blood flow, almost like water from a sponge.
